These weeks are flying by! Lacey is starting classes at her new school on Monday and I am so proud of how she is throwing every effort she has at this new job. (Super proud husband here.) I am helping her in the classroom today and I am excited to lead worship at Clairemont Emmanuel this weekend. Always fun to team up with my dad. Now, some links:

  • Have I already mentioned how pumped I am for the new Lakers roster? Dwight Howard on top of Kobe, Steve Nash, Ron Artest & Pao Gasol?! That photo is just ridiculous.

  • Keiran said it best: "Samsung owes Apple one Instagram." I'll probably never try to get in any legal battle with Apple.

  • Here is a great story FastCompany featured from my friend Bob's new book, Love Does. Check it out here.

  • The blood, sweat, and tears we have put into ZenCash are starting to pay off. Fun to have this feature released.

  • Everyone has been watching Charity: Water since they set the bar so high in conveying what they do as an organization with their media. They released a new home page this week and they definitely met the level of clarity and simplicity they've done so well with.

  • Holiday Matinee is not only a great blog, but they have the bestmixes. Their August Mixtape is fantastic.

  • It is inspiring to get a glimpse into lives of people who craft things with their hands: thosewhomake.com

  • This week, two of my favorite companies (Evernote & Moleskine) announced they are combining forces. I carry both of them with me essentially everywhere I go to record notes, ideas, quotes, thoughts, etc. I am interested to see how this notebook turns out.
